From rising star Ros Baxter comes a love story about duty, desire, and dairy products.
Ten years ago, Genevieve Jenkins let the Love of her Life ride out of town while she settled for The Safe Bet. Turns out Mr Safe Bet wasn't so safe after all, and life in her small home town of Sweet Pocket got kind of sour. The last thing she needs on top of two kids, a sick mother, a deadbeat ex and a heap of bad debt is for Mr Love of her Life to ride back into town, successful, smart, devastatingly sexy, and all the things that she can no longer be.
And it doesn't help that she's dressed as cheese.
One–time–bad–boy–now–Crop–King Brodie Brown is back in town on a mission of mercy, but he's keeping his guard up. He can't let this town – or the girl who broke his heart ten years before – get under his skin. He's seen what working the land can do to people, and he built his business, and a whole new life, in the big smoke far away from the pain and despair of a farmer's life. But he loved this town and he loves the people, so when Sweet Pocket calls, he answers. That's just the way it is.
But it's only temporary and it's only business. Brodie learned long ago that there is nothing left for him in Sweet Pocket but a broken heart and lost dreams. When the town's future is secure, he'll ride away again – back to his life and his future, and away from the girl who could make both worthwhile.
